Goodreads asked Charlie Cochrane:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

Charlie Cochrane Three things.

When people mail you out of the blue to say how much they like your books.

When you can help new and aspiring writers, especially if it involves them avoiding making the mistakes you made.

When you find something you wrote ages ago, read it and think, "Oh, that's quite good. Did I really write it?"
